Did we just say 'rear-wheel-drive Taycan'? You're damn right we did. Because here we find Chris Harris attempting to set a world record for the longest drift in an electric vehicle, and Porsche have lent Harris a Taycan devoid of its front drive shafts especially for the challenge. But can he get his crossed-up hands on the world record? Let's find out.

  • Does anybody know if the wheels on the black Taycan are the OEM 19" Aero wheels that are just blacked out?

  • dennis retera is so good at drifting

  • I'm just wondering though what cost options did this Taycan have fitted you can have all sorts fitted like Adaptive air suspension (The Rear wheel drive Taycan has steel spring suspension as standard) four wheel steering, Porsche dynamic chassis control, Porsche Torque Vectoring plus, did this car have any of them fitted or was it just standard?

  • Notice that they picked the entry level 19" wheels to do this. But they blacked them out first.
